1st room water leak , 2nd room no air conditioning. Would not refund money . Ruined my staycation. NEVER stayed in room due to poor conditions and billed anyway. All I wanted was a clean, cool, dry room and this location could not deliver. No Management on site for 3 days to discuss issues. HORRIBLE! DONT DO IT. I am a 60 year old executive… Read more

Front desk staff was very friendly and courteous. The problem that we had was that the room was dated and looked like it hadn’t been dusted in a month. There was only decaf coffee available in our room and there were no hand towels. Also, it was very hot because apparently you do not get to control your own room’s temperature. It’s up to the hotel… Read more

It’s up to the hotel to decide whether you get AC or heat. Our room registered at 75 degrees in the middle of April and it was close to 60 degrees outside. I won’t stay here again for those reasons. I am disappointed. Read less

I will never stay with another Marriott again. Housekeeping stole from us!!!! Do not stay here!!!!! It’s been 2 months and no resolution to what had happened, and they said they MAY compensate half of what was stolen. 2 Louis Vuitton belts and 500 in cash was stolen. There’s was proof housekeeping went in our room due to the key cards being detected. And they may compensate half just for the belts. The belts are 600 a piece and you might compensate for 1???!!! Horrible hotel horrible staff. Read less

I reserved my room here as part of a block of rooms for a wedding. I called to tell the hotel that I would be arriving in the morning after a red-eye flight, and was told that despite having a credit card on file they couldn't just charge the room. When I arrived after 12 hours of travel at 7:30AM, I was told rudely that my reservation was… Read more
I reserved my room here as part of a block of rooms for a wedding. I called to tell the hotel that I would be arriving in the morning after a red-eye flight, and was told that despite having a credit card on file they couldn't just charge the room. When I arrived after 12 hours of travel at 7:30AM, I was told rudely that my reservation was changed, that I wasn't supposed to check in until that night, that check-in time is really at 4:00PM, and that really there wouldn't be anything available until noon at the earliest. The "changed" was by the front desk when they sold my room off to someone else without my knowledge. No compensation for the hotel involuntarily changing my reservation that had a confirmation and a credit card on file. Just told to wait in the lobby for four and a half hours. I don't write one-star reviews, but this place deserves it. Bad reservation policy made worse by bad customer service. Read less

The hotel turns off the AC in October so you have to sweat it out. They tell you to turn off your room's system and open the windows that open 1 inch. They will offer box fans if you are too hot - which we were. Three nights of sweats and you're sweating minutes after you get out of the shower. And a bonus if you're into it, this hotel is not… Read more
The hotel turns off the AC in October so you have to sweat it out. They tell you to turn off your room's system and open the windows that open 1 inch. They will offer box fans if you are too hot - which we were. Three nights of sweats and you're sweating minutes after you get out of the shower. And a bonus if you're into it, this hotel is not ready for modern times. If you want to stay at a place where you smell marijuana from the moment you leave your room to the lobby, this is the place. With the AC turned off and them telling you to turn off your system, there is not air circulation. Cars and ATVs race up Jefferson Street all hours of the night. The noise is loud and obnoxious from the highest of floors. Because of COVID, they don't clean your rooms and you have to ask for fresh towels if staying less than 7 nights. Be prepared to wait as they don't have towels at the front and it takes hours to get them. Read less
